Success at anything will always come down to this: Focus & Effort. And we control both.
The Way out is Through
Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
Make a list of all the things that bother you. Make another list of how you’re going to shorten the first list. Work on the second list.
When you get fatigued, don’t quit! Take some time to rest and recover and get back to it. That’s how you get stronger.
Time doesn’t change things. Doing things changes things. Doing nothing leaves things exactly the way they were.
When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire kind people.
